Legendary DJ, David Hamilton, waves the flag at Top Gear test track.
The latest Mini-related announcements.
Former Mini owner and celebrated DJ, ‘Diddy’ David Hamilton, flagged off owners and guests at Dunsfold Aerodrome, home of the Top Gear test track, where they enjoyed some fast parade laps of the circuit behind a safety car, whilst being bathed in glorious summer sunshine.
Called ‘Minis at Dunsfold’ the event is organised and hosted by Mini owner and enthusiast, Jon Spriggs, and is part of his fundraising activities for The Italian Job, the annual touring event to Italy which, this year, will raise money Buttle UK.
David was on hand to encourage owners taking part to take up the last few places in this year’s run. Now in its 29th year, The Italian Job, like Jon’s event, is open to Minis of all ages, shapes and sizes. The event takes participants on a tour like no other, not only does it take in locations from the famous film, but destinations off the beaten track are explored as well, and local produce is sampled. Organised by Freddie and Giulia St. George, The Italian Job has raised over £2.6 million for children’s charities to date.
Jon raised a brilliant £3,551.24 at Minis at Dunsfold, which we think is a very impressive achievement.
After waving off the Minis, David stayed on hand to encourage Italian Job sign-ups. David Hamilton and Jon Spriggs.
